Jack. Didn't you come see me in Hawthorn Nv some years back. I thought it was you. You use to be my driver didn't you.

No, I haven't really had the chance to get back to him. I work 4-12+ almost every night and at my age, I need the extra daylight hours to recharge my batteries, example: last night I went in at 4:PM and got home at 6:AM this morning. It's always different, but this coming weekend I'm off Friday thru Monday.
You know I knew your name but couldn't place a face with it till I saw one of the old pictures you have on your page. Bang! Like a gun shot, it all came back. You worked with Friend? on the infantry/mortar track right?  4.2 mortar if I remember right  There was another guy who worked that track from Buffalo New York.  I can’t remember his name? I think he went up for Sgt, but didn’t get it.  Everything’s kind of fuzzy but it’s coming back  Great to hear from you too!!!
